On April 16th, TAX COLLECTION DAY, numerous
demonstations were held around Boston, protesting the U.S. tax dollars spent on military spending... When one street peformance enacted a mock Israeli occupation, a high tension arose, marking a new powerful mode of demonstration in this community.
The Politics of Protest is a weak politics, the politics of weakness, the politics of weak people, with weak imaginations -- powerless people. Powerless persons must use whatever tactics they can of course. But that is the point.
